1978 World Cup Final Can't Post or Reply Privately

What was unique about the 1978 World Cup Final ?
Clue.Nothing to do with the stadium,individual players, managers, referees etc.
Incidentally were the Van der Kerkhof brothers twins? And if so if this the only time that twins have played in a World Cup Final?
Which of course would make it 2 unique thiings!

And nothing to do with the fact an outfield player (Ossie) wore the number one shirt.

Give us a clue...

They are twins

Was it only one with Man of the Match award (Kempes)?

I think you're close, Stu. I think the answer is that the Argentina squad numbers were allocated in alphabetical order, hence the fact that Ardiles wore number 1.

It was the only time the same nation had lost successive finals.

Incidentally, Ardiles wore shirt number 2 in that tournament. Norberto Alonso was number 1, in case Patrick McGoohan is reading ;)

You may be aware that there is soon to be a remake of the Prisoner. I have the original series on DVD and can't imagine it will get anywhere near the original for enjoyment. Not least because the afforementioned actor will not be playing number 6.

It was not the only time that a team has lost two consecutive finals West Germany lost in 1982 and 1986.
You are on the right lines though.

In 1978 it was the only time. Not until eight years later did it not become the only time, but that isn't how the question or my answer is phrased Tongue

Again just a guess, maybe the only world cup final where both finalists had already been beaten earlier in the tournament.

Yes Chris you are correct. The Netherlands lost to Scotland and Argentina lost to Italy.

1978 World Cup Final [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

The uniqueness was the first repetition of defeat of the finalist team. It was for the first time since the last past eight years that time that the same team lost in the final for two times. Sports news normally have much interesting stories about different unique sporting sports events and happenings.
